    then it is true that coffee increases performance! Time to fire up my Mister Coffee for the third time this morning before I hit the gym.

    Why waste good coffee on this rather than use something like tiny little synthetic bearings or something?

    Of course, I suppose there is plenty of bad coffee they could use. Like Starbucks. If you drink straight black coffee rather than turning it into a gay-latte syrup filled with sugar and carbs, you'll learn quickly that Starbucks burns the shit out of their actual coffee and then lets it sit on way too high a heat afterward. Coffee comes in 5 grades: Coffee, java, joe, jamoke, and carbon remover. Starbucks coffee drunk straight up is usually somewhere between the last two.

    The coffee I get from McD's or from the Fast Eddy's on the corner is better than the overpriced shit at Starbucks. So yeah, I guess I would endorse using the latter for 'robot socks.'

    good info! I always wondered why Starbucks coffee tastes so bitter and nasty.

    It is possible that it's used grounds in the feet and not fresh coffee, but like you, I wouldn't object if that was the fate of coffee produced by Starbucks.
